During a visit to a London Jewish community center, Britain’s King Charles danced with Holocaust survivors. Eva Schloss, Anne Frank’s 93-year-old stepsister, participated in the dance and afterward said to Britain’s Daily Telegraph, “He was sweet.
He truly participated. He appeared to relish it.
The visit was a part of the British monarch’s tour of the JW3 community center, a place that serves as a nexus for London’s arts, culture, social action, and education and is open to people of all faiths.
The monarch visited an Orthodox Jewish hair and beauty school and was shown the kitchen where volunteers and refugees put together food parcels for the less fortunate.
The self-defense course at the community center piqued the king’s curiosity.
At a tea party for Holocaust survivors, Charles was the star guest.
He engaged the survivors in friendly conversation before joining some of them on the dance floor.
According to the 74-year-old king, the Jewish music there made him think of Scottish country dance.
A menorah with the inscription “One person’s candle offers the light to many” was given to the monarch.
When his mother, Queen Elizabeth, passed away in September, Charles became king.
The king’s official coronation date has been set for May 5, 2023.
